A mid-century modern dining room pays homage to the timeless designs and lifestyle of the 50s and 60s. Characterized by minimalism and rounded sharp angles, mid-century modern spearheaded the modern design movement. For your dining room, make liberal use of the trademark dark walnut colored finish in your dining tables, chairs, or sideboards. The dining room should use sunburst-style ceiling lamps for an authentic mid-century modern look. Pick colors that are vibrant, yet saturated. If you're seeking a dining room that is both inviting and urbane, mid-century modern is the style for you.
